Take the ashtray out and then pry the clips that hold the ashtray carrier and remove that. Then you can push out the ACC. This gives you room to push out the seat heater switches. Then you can push out the DCC and remove the wiring connectors. The bulbs can be removed by twisting the two round thins in the back of the DCC (they're the rear of the bulbs; you don't have to split the DCC like I did by removing the spring clips). Now, I'm looking for the replacement bulbs. They are Osram Hallogins. Saab dealer wants >$40 including shipping. Does anyone know of a source for Oram bulbs? Tom Trueb Delphi, IN 89 9000 CDt
